Unlock Leadership in Accounting

Accounting with a Technology Edge »

Exceptional, modern-day accountants need an exceptional, modern-day accounting education. As the #1 program in Western NY, ranking nationally #62 for undergraduate business programs in the U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges Rankings, Saunders College of Business provides just that. 

Saunders College integrates technology into accounting programs at every possible turn. At all levels of education, accounting students take a deep dive into accounting information systems and utilize a suite of analytics software that is commonly used in the Management Information Systems (MIS) program, which has been ranked #6 nationally in the 2019 College Factual rankings.

Saunders generates well-rounded accountants by offering double majors in intersecting disciplines, such as MIS and New Media Marketing. Students also diversify their knowledge through a liberal arts immersion - a concentration of three courses in a particular area - and the RIT Edge allows students to declare a minor in any of RIT's nine colleges

Saunders is excited to offer students an accelerated dual BS/MS degree starting this semester. After earning a bachelor's degree in accounting, students are able to earn a MS in Accounting in less than one additional year. All accounting programs are designed to prepare students to sit for the New York State CPA exam.

Technology is the underlying heartbeat of major companies. My accounting degree and MIS concentration have given me knowledge to help bridge the gap between the business and technology disciplines.
